Send this one to your BFF! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida


I just l-o-v-e Life Delights! This paper pack was one of many goodies in my consultant kit when I joined Close To My Heart in August 2007. I still have quite a bit of it, so I thoughts I'd pull it out for this "BFF" card.
Why is it a "BFF" card? Well, I used the "BFF" sentiment from "Buttoned Together" inside the card. The cute little gal is on a pull-out tag that tucks behind the flower. Ordinarily, I would have inked all of the edges. But I plan to use this as one of my Club Cards and I'm trying to keep it simple.
I have mixed feelings about Sunday evenings. On the positive side, I have clean laundry and have had some down time, and tons of creative time. On the down side, my mind is already thinking about work tomorrow. I like my job, I really do......but I wish I had an extra day to do all the things I need to do....and those that I want to do....at home! I find myself staying up later and later just to extend the weekend as long as possible.
Do you find yourself in the same dilemma? I have been the head of household for 16 years now, and it's starting to wear on me. If you have anyone that helps you at all - whether it be yardwork, cooking, cleaning or killing spiders - consider yourself blessed! Give them a big hug for me, will you?
For now, I will go back to working on my blog background. I hope you like the changes. I am likely to change it often as the mood hits!
Thanks for your visits and your comments,

Fun card, Deb! The use of the Big Pinks is great.I love that paper, too.

You hit the nail on the head about Sunday nights. I almost always stay up too late, because, I'm sure, I don't want the weekend to end. Sometimes, I can't sleep if/when I do go to bed cuz I'm thinking about everything I have to do at work. Either way, I'm tired on Mondays.

Hi, cute card. Sundays, hmmmmmm! I love Mondays or used to when I had someplace to go. I am hoping this will post. I have run into some blogs that I can't post to. I hope I haven't screwed something up in my settings.
